Many of us get undesired emails in our inboxes on a daily basis; we either react by ignoring these emails or attempting to block them. Those who choose to block these undesired emails do so by either adding the sender to a blocked list or create various rules in the mail client to discard similar messages to a specific folder (i.e. junk) or ask the admin to report it. These steps are a good start, but are they enough to make your inbox spam free?
When you first create your email address you are typically spam free for a couple of months but as you become more active on the internet (sign up to various social media sites, participate in forums, subscribe to website etc.) the odds of getting spam drastically increase and your email becomes visible to more and more spammers. The end result usually equates to being swamped with spam or let’s just say undesired emails. The method of protection (mentioned above) might save you from a few undesired messages but soon you will realize that this needs to be escalated to a higher level. Spammers are not stupid they know exactly what they are doing, and there is a lot of work involved in the background, including: harvesting email addresses from the internet or buying them from the black market. Some go even further by using a bot which gets installed on a users computer which waits for a trigger from the spammer to flood the internet with spam using an endless list of email addresses. Some of these emails come from different senders, different IP addresses, with different subject lines, or even different body text, therefore it becomes harder to find a common key to block it. This is where the user needs to be educated about email security and the impacts of randomly browsing the internet.
All of these potential threats demonstrate the importance of protecting your environment with various services: Anti-Virus, and phishing products that are capable of analyzing and scoring all incoming emails and deciding whether or not to block specific messages. Using this technology will make your inbox over 99% spam free, allowing you to dedicate your time to more important tasks.
